This week I'm looking at Sensory Processing issues. You may want to read some of my previous posts before reading this week's articles...start here.
This post will outline some general strategies that you may try at home or in the classroom. Mailloux (1992) describes these strategies as a way you can help your child to normalise the way the nervous system registers and interprets touch information.
